What Are Blood Vessels?
Broken blood vessels or “spider veins” are those dilated veins right below your skin’s surface. These small, red and blue lines spread in web-like formations in certain regions of your face and other parts of your body. Though harmless, blood vessels can be quite detrimental to our confidence. Many try to mask this problem with cosmetics, but everyone can agree that a more permanent fix is much more desirable. At Montana Aesthetics, we’re happy to offer our ICON ThreeForMe treatment and ICON BBL treatment. This spider vein solution uses a specialized laser to improve the appearance of your skin with minimal downtime required.
What Causes Abnormal Blood Vessels?
Broken blood vessels may develop from chronic sun damage or trauma. Sometimes, a person may be genetically predisposed to getting them. On the legs they can occur due to poor circulation that results in increased pressure within superficial veins. Sometimes, those struggling with these veins may feel pain due to the excess and unnatural blood build-up. The added blood clumped in these veins has nowhere to go and thus swells the affected area, giving the veins their characteristic protruding appearance. Leg veins can be treated with sclerotherapy.
Treating Blood Vessels With ICON ThreeForMe
When you visit Montana Aesthetics, our dedicated team will work hard to ensure that you receive the best care possible. The ICON ThreeForMe laser treatment has been designed to offer exceptional results for blood vessels unjust 45 minutes. This treatment is performed in two steps. The first step involves using ICON IPL technology to treat discoloration for a more even complexion. This stage addresses the broken blood vessels, breaking them down and promoting absorption into the body. The second step involves the use of microbeam laser technology that gently renews the skin for a smoother appearance. This laser promotes long-term collagen and elastin production, leading to improved skin over time.
Pain and discomfort during the blood vessel treatment procedure is generally mild. Following your laser treatment, some redness, swelling, and bruising may occur but will subside shortly. After the bruising subsides, you will see a dramatic reduction in the appearance of your spider veins.* The beauty of this laser treatment is that it requires no downtime. After your session, you are free to leave and go about the rest of your day.
